It was really nice staying near the center of all the action in Marathon Florida Keys. The island is darn big at around six miles, so from the middle it is easy to bicycle around to all parts without needing the automobile. Our room rental was on the third floor and had a really nice view over the golf course and out to Vaca Key. Being close to Sombrero Beach was a big treat too, plus all the local bars and restaurants within five minutes from the hotel.
On the days that the reef water is a bit rough, play golf at the course next to the hotel. It is walking distance from the Middle Keys Publix and the Kmart, for groceries and cheap island style gifts. Kayaking is huge in the area, and the Curry Hammock Trails are open daily to rent and the beach is very close to the hotel.
We so much enjoyed having the large swimming pool to use each day. The Tiki Bar sits poolside with all the tropical drinks and food, all so relaxing. This is the Center of the Island which means lots of options for shopping, watersports, plus the golf course.
What makes it special is the Sombrero Marina which can handle even the really large yachts. Call the on-site dock master ahead of time for docking information or incoming waterway directions. The marina offers both 30 and 50 amp electric power, utilities, and cable television.
